Interior Furniture and Woodwork
Deemed the ‘classic’ finish, waxes have been used for centuries to protect and enhance wooden furniture. Made from natural ingredients, they produce a soft, satin sheen and give furniture a silky feel.
Choosing the right product
Can be used directly onto bare wood.
Can be used over French polish, varnish or oil to create an extra protective barrier.
Easy to repair and maintain, simply remove and rewax the affected area.
THINGS TO CONSIDER
A wax finish is the least durable of all the finishes and needs to be maintained regularly. Maintenance is however simple, just rewax when the surface looks dull.
Wax finishes are not suitable for humid or wet environments, oil or varnish finishes are recommended in these areas.
